The first chapter, read by Josh Smith, is difficult to get through, as it's read in one of those monotonous drones with no indication of punctuation or dialogue. However, the remaining 30+ chapters, read by Bill Boerst, are pretty good--not great but pretty good. There are some pronunciation problems and there's not much intonation, but it's a nice, straightforward reading.
